Prepare this in the crockpot in the afternoon, and by the time dinner is over you’ll have this wonderful dessert ready to enjoy.

Pat into 8″ circle to fit the shape of the crockpot. Cut into 8 wedges and arrange over fruit in crockpot.
Cover and cook on high untl biscuit topping is no longer doughy underneath, about 3 hours. Remove insert and let cool, uncovered for about an hour before serving.
You can also make this with mixed berries, but I only had strawberries so that’s what I used. This was really delicious, especially with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. It was a great dessert to have after a Sunday dinner. We all enjoyed this one. Funny how the kids never have trouble eating dessert. Hmmm.
